Some kind of attraction...

there appears to be a fatal attraction between this department and drunks :)
An hour into the shift and the same officer who "found" the drunk last Sunday picked up another one. In a way it serves him right, he took off thursday night and we were kinda slammed for the hoot shift. I guess that's one reason I enjoy working this shift, it's pretty quiet, but when things happen they happen.

Nothing too spectacular though, just a wasted guy walking down the road. :)

The rest of the story...

It didn't just end with the really unsmart drunk sunday night. By the time my officer who was working got back to the station, after escorting the poor "confused" lady to the jail it was after 3 am.

He's still in the middle of all the paperwork that goes along with a DUI and about 15 til 6, (we get off at 7) a gentleman walks in the front door and asks to speak with an officer. So, being the good dispatcher that I am, I run back to his office and tell him he has a visitor.

Only, this visitor wants to be EOD'd. Ouch. And, being the only one on shift, he gets both boatloads of paperwork. Luckily, the next officers coming on at 7 helped him and transported him to the nearest crazy house which was about thirty minutes away. I was very glad to be off last night and tonight too. Hopefully, the effects of the full moon won't carry over into my week. :))

I now have a "people never fail to surprise me" story.

In short, if you have four outstanding warrants, are obviously operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, and have enough beer in the vehicle for a small kegger, why on earth would you go to a police station and ask for directions??

The officer on shift very helpfully escorted her to the county jail. :)
